Artwork Appreciation
TU Wei-Cheng’s BM1001 is a work from the Relics of the Punan Civilization series. Modern technology is regarded as a historical event and TU constructed a new divine idol and mythology basing various elements of real civilizations and archeological sites. This seemingly ancient artifact is actually a totem of modern computer technologies as well as endemic species of insects and plants in Taiwan, generating a spatial and temporal disparity among the viewers. TU Wei-Cheng uses the work to contemplate globalization, and depicts rich natural ecology, unique natural resources, and the local cultural diversity and tolerance in Taiwan.
